This Rosebank was bottled by Specialty Drinks for The Whisky Exchange and was drawn from a single bourbon cask before being bottled at a fairly decent strength – 48abv. It bears a prettty cool looking retro label as well, inspired by yesteryears whisky design..
On the nose: Sweet and refreshing. Vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, sawdust and a little wet hay. More flowers with water as well as perfume. Fresh acidic and green fruity notes after some time in the glass.
On the palate: Sweet green and herbal. Light and easygoing With hints of sugarcoated breakfast cereals. A bit waxy in the mouth. Water opens up for summery hints like flowers and sweet grass. It’s all finished off with more savoury cereals and green deliciousness.
A very typical Rosebank as far as my experience goes. Very good, but no lifechanger.
Best without water added.
